it did mention the masonry...
You described anti-Masonic sentiment congealing at Yale. To what degree were the Freemasons involved in the secret societies up until that point,
to your knowledge?
People have asked me about links between the Freemasons and the Skull & Bones. I donít think there are any specific links between the organizations
but of course there have always been overlaps in the members just as there have been overlaps with the Trilateral Commission and the Council on
Foreign Relations. For example Winston Lord, who was a prominent member of Skull & Bones, was also the president of the Council on Foreign Relations
and George Bush, during the Reagan Bush administration, appointed him the ambassador to China. So you do see these kinds of overlaps and one
interesting tidbit about Freemasons is that the Phi Beta Kappa chapter at Yale, before Skull & Bones arrived on campus, was housed in a building said
to be owned by the Freemasons.
